Most women choose to breastfeed as they are aware of the many benefits that breastmilk offers for them and their babies. However, other considerations may lead some women to choose to bottle feed. Information to assist you to make the right choice for you and your baby is available from your midwife. You do not have to make this decision until your baby is born.
Whatever your choice, you will be assisted with early feeding by your midwife.
